All generic domain extensions and some country-code ones support a security lock functionality whose purpose is to hinder unapproved transfers of existing domains. Many registry operators that oversee country-code TLDs that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of security and for the convenience of the domain name registrants. A domain can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only an individual who has access to the account with the current registrar company can achieve that. New domain names are registered with the lock feature enabled deliberately, so as to hinder any unsolicited transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the safety measures for controlling the transfer of existing domain names between domain name registrars that have been introduced over the years.
Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting
With a cloud web hosting from our company, you will exercise absolute command over your domain names through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You’ll be able to do anything you would like, including locking and unlocking any of the domains registered here, on the condition that the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports this option. Clicking the padlock icon that you’ll find next to any domain name registered in your Control Panel will show you its present status and clicking it once more will allow you to edit that status. If you’d like to transfer a domain to another domain registrar, you can start the procedure without any delays. Since unlocking a domain through your Control Panel will take effect instantly, no propagation interval or any action on our end will be required. Locking a domain is just as easy – you’ll just need to go through the very same steps.
